Re: OneVoice Network - Official Thread

Thanks! I'll have to look at my notes on DSDPlus for All Comm to see if I have anything. Since I'm done with the Data Radio VHF system for now, I'll plug All Comm Boston into DSD and give a listen. I have heard traffic that sounds a lot like Alliance on the All-Comm UHF Capacity Plus system using TG...

Re: English in ADS-B

Sadly, there doesn't seem to be an Android version. There are two ADSB trackers available, but both are paid for. I can use the website for free and it does the same thing. I’m using a slightly different version. It’s called OpenADSB, here is a link to it. https://apps.apple.com/us/app/openadsb/id11...

I didn't even know that there was an app. I just use the website on my phone. On my Windows PC, the nation names show up in their native languages.

A friend was talking to one of the employees and noted that they have both VHF and 900Mhz antennas on their cars. The e...

Yikes! That happened to us last year and we were out of town when it happened. Fortunately, a friend was keeping an eye on the place and called to tell me. I was able to get ahold of the oil company and they sent a tech right over. Good luck, I hope it's not too expensive. Sadly, Cash was in-hand an...

Re: Massachusetts Area DMR, Uniden HPE or ProScan

For the most part DMR users are mostly business related. As Mike points out, colleges and hospitals are transitioning to DMR as they replace equipment. Special needs transportation companies use radio a lot due to the nature of their clientele. None of it is particularly interesting, though. I don't...

Re: Good deal on brand-new Uniden BCD325P2 handheld phase II scanner

I have bought factory refurbished Unidens in the past with good results. As you point out though, right now there is a shortage. At some point I expect to have a used, but in good condition, 325P2 for sale. I have to wait until Uniden does whatever to the one that I sent to them before that. The one...

Re: A Tale of Two Scanners

There is always some risk when buying used. OTOH, if I didn't have the first scanner to compare this one with, I probably wouldn't have realized that the second one has poor sensitivity. This is actually the first time I've ended up with a defective used scanner. I don't think the seller realized th...

Re: A Tale of Two Scanners

I did as it happens. I removed the "front" board so that I could get to the "rear" board where the antenna connects. I wiggled it and there was no movement. I was hoping that it would be as simple as that, but alas it's not. Off to Uniden it goes later today. Along the same lines as the antenna sugg...

Re: A Tale of Two Scanners

It's a good idea. I did that, with several different antenna combinations, and the results were consistent. The non DMR scanner always received better. Probably not the issue and you might have already thought of it. However, have you tried swapping the antennas between the two? Perhaps the newer on...

I'm posting this to bounce some thoughts off of the tech types, but of course anyone can jump in. Back in Sept. I bought a 325P2 for a small scanner to listen to around the house when I didn't want to drag the SDS100 around. I'm mostly interested in town public safety, MSP in the area, and local tow...

Re: SDS100/200 GPS Scanning

When I was setting up the GPS coordinates for the ICE and Bearcom/Comtronics 900 systems, I found that particularly with Bearcom the Lat/Long data was often incorrect compared to the RR information. I set up two separate spreadsheets, one for each system. I spent time verifying what the FCC had (I k...
